"Hello. Is it me you're looking for?"
From all walks of life regardless of culture and or background, many if not all of us have been searching for the same thing with the same question. Yes, it is probable that we each do it in our very own way, but for the most part it is all the same thing.
What is Love, how do I find it and just as importantly where it?
For some, love or their definition of love seems to fall right on the doorstep (Prime Membership two-day shipping?). For others it is a never-ending search mission with hopes that one day Love will come knocking and solve every issue we have ever had.
Number one. Love was not designed to solve issues. Love is supposed to be a state of being. It must also be internal for it to have any impact on your life and the lives of those around you. Love must also be active and actionable, ever evolving.
Evolving...not changing. Love, in its purest form is just what it is. Nothing more and nothing less. What should increase is your understanding of love and how it can impact your life and those around you.
This happens when you practice BEING LOVE, versus just feeling love and more importantly trying to get love.
Love has never been an elusive prey to be hunted. Nor is it an exclusively rare item meant for but a few.
No, that has never been the case even if at times we have all felt like love wasn't meant for any of us.
Love has always been there. The problem is that most of us start looking for it in the wrong places. To be sure, we start off as children seeking the approval and love from our parents.
That trend tends to stay with us for most of our lives until and or if we meet someone of whom we think can fill the void other than our parents.
Here is the thing about that concept. As I mentioned before is an action. It is a state of being. And the most important part is where it starts and who it’s for.
It starts inside and it is for Self.
I know that sounds to simple. Or maybe too hard. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter. If you want to be able to have fulfilling love as a part of your life. To live as love and be love, then it must start with loving YOU and loving YOU properly.
Then and only then will you be able to share that experience with someone else. Then and only then will you know what love is supposed to feel like and how to reciprocate it.
That word is super important. Too often people live with the perspective of what they can GET with or out of love instead of who much we can DO with love...by being Love.
So many of our relationships are based on happiness rather than fulfillment. That is where we fail. Happiness is temporary whereas fulfillment will last as long as you put the effort into it to help it grow.
Regardless, it all starts in that one place that has always been so much closer than we have ever thought or imagined.
Inside. Inside work....outside results.
That is the key and always has been. Then and only then can you share that abundant feeling with those who you chose and who chose to share a journey.
Complex, but not Complicated. People make it complicated, but it doesn't have to be.
Take a look in the mirror. Discover who you are. See the "Who In You". Love that person correctly and completely (Correctly is the operative word here), become love and then draw someone to share that journey with.
There are other parts to this puzzle to be sure, but this is where it all starts. This is where the great journey begins.
One step, first step. Find you, Define you, Love you...Love others.
That is where the magic happens.
Love....is in you and Love is YOU.
